FREEDOM ON FIRE: UKRAINE'S FIGHT FOR FREEDOM
Evgeny Afineevsky's look at the Russian invasion of Ukraine is a moving look at the pain and suffering that the is being inflicted on the the Ukrainian people. This an in your face presentation of the war on the war on the ground. Its record of a people who refuse to give up and their enemy who refuse to understand they can't be broken. It's a film so incredibly moving that Russian officials are afraid of it that they are trying to shut it down and discredit it by any means necessary.
THE KILLING OF A JOURNALIST
Matt Sarnecki investigates the killing of an investigative journalist and his fiancé in Slovenia. Their murders became complicated when evidence was leaked that the government had a hand in the killings which were done at the behest of some very bad guys.
the dangers of being an investigative journalist in a world increasingly sliding toward oppression are highlighted in this gut punch film. Yes Ján Kuciak might have taken more precautions but when the Slovenian government was gunning for him as well there was no chance this was ever going to end well.
I was pissed off.
